Darfur rebels sign truce deal with Sudan

Darfur's most powerful rebel group has initiated a truce with the Sudanese government Saturday, officials said.
The truce between the rebel Justice and Equality Movement and the Sudanese government takes effect immediately, according to Fox News.
Justice and Equality spokesman Ahmed Hussein said the deal initiated Saturday is the framework for future peace talks, including the negotiation of an indefinite cease-fire, according to The New York Times.
Sudan's government has agreed to numerous cease-fires over several years, but some have fallen short only days after signing. Distrust between the two parties still remains deep.
